Displaced Gamers Investigate The Code For The Broken Water Level of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

I have been a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles since I was five years old, and the original NES game has always been a favorite of mine. In this video from the YouTube channel Displaced Gamers, they investigate the code of the infamous water level to see why it has been giving so many people trouble over the past 23 years.

The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game is known for being Nintendo hard. I love watching some of the best NES gamers on Twitch play this one. It is one of the most challenging games on the system, but it is also one of my top NES games. I don't know if I will ever be able to include myself in the group of people that have beat this game, but I will keep trying. I want to make Master Splinter proud. I am a huge nerd, and seeing the code from the games I grew up with excites me. I know it might not be for everyone, but I find it fascinating to see how these games work.

These folks over at Displaced Gamers do a fantastic job at explaining the code to people who are not as familiar with coding. I know a lot of video games back then were buggy, but I think it's rad that we can go back and try to fix these problems with rom patches. With Konami's Cowabunga Collection out, I know some people might want to give this game and level another try. I have not been able to beat the water level to this day, but I am ready to conquer this level.

Did you play this game when you were younger? What other games would you like to see an analysis of the code? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
